About the award:

In each issue of SIAM Review, which is the flagship journal of the Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), the SIGEST section contains an outstanding paper of general interest that has previously appeared in one of SIAM’s specialized research journals; the issues rotate through the journals. A paper from SIAM Journal on Optimization is chosen for the SIGEST award once every three to four years. The purpose of SIGEST is to make the 10,000+ readers of SIAM Review aware of exceptional papers published in SIAM’s specialized journals.
